All states require civil engineers to be licensed. A bachelor's degree in civil engineering is enough to qualify for the licensing exam, called the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination. Successfully passing this exam will allow you to practice as an Engineer in Training. The International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering focuses on promoting cooperation, understanding, awareness and responsibility among structural engineers through a worldwide exchange of knowledge and experience. The e-Learning platform includes lectures, animations, videos, links and more connecting engineers from around the world. The Rewards of Civil Engineering Plans and designs transportation or hydraulic systems and structures, following construction and government standards, using design software and drawing tools.

Getting into engineering school requires a strong report card in math and science, and courses in English, social studies, and computers. Also, some schools prepare an engineer to get a job after graduation while others prepare an engineer for graduate school. It is a good idea to learn about the school before you attend. In a typical college, the first 2 years are for studying math, science, engineering basics, the arts, and social sciences. In the last 2 years, most courses are in engineering, mostly in a single branch. Civil engineering is one of the more common branches of engineering.
Ryan received his BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Brigham Young University, his MS in Environmental Science from the University of Guam, and his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Colorado State University. Current projects focus on exploring remediation strategies for salinity and nutrient pollution in stream-aquifer systems in eastern Colorado, and providing assessments of groundwater quantity in the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of Maldives under climate stress. Continuing education Civil engineers must stay up-to-date with new technology and building methods, so continuing education is important for a long-lasting career. PEs must attend continuing education courses in order to renew their licenses.
The EIT test is used under this standard to determine whether competitors without a degree in engineering or other qualifying education have a knowledge and understanding of mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences required to perform professional engineering work in a specialty field of engineering. This test is not to be considered as being in lieu of the requirement of at least 4 years of experience and/or education that might be regarded as providing such knowledge.
